Fishing Ventures during Night Fishing
- Fishing is a natural vocation in the Maldives, given that ninety-nine percent of the country is water. The Maldivians have a unique way to catch their daily fish. Using nets is forbidden to ensure there is no overfishing and by-catch. In order to keep the marine life in its abundance, the locals use only hand lines to pull in their catch. An art passed down from generation to generation to this day. Experience it first hand!
The island nationThere is always a bit of luck involved in fishing! If the conditions are on your side, the experienced boat crew will help you catch some of the best reef fish of the Maldives: snapper, jack fish, grouper or even trevally.
What's the catch?You can reward yourself, if you have a good catch, by letting the Excursions Coordinator know the fish you would like to be cooked and served to your table for lunch or dinner the next day. It is at no cost if you would like to enjoy it at your allocated buffet restaurant, and at a small supplement if you would like to have it prepared at Kuredu's à la carte restaurants.
